PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Coventry City

The Glovers host Sky Blues in second fixture at home

25 August 2017

Town players celebrate a goal at Forest Green Rovers

Looking to take the positives from Town’s defeat at Forest Green Rovers, all three starting forwards found themselves on the scoresheet.

Southampton loanee Olufela Olomola continued his fine form of the previous week against Accrington Stanley with an early goal to take his tally in Green and White to three, before Otis Khan netted from the spot – his second of the season.

Forward Francois Zoko added a third for the Glovers, and now sits seventh on Yeovil’s all-time EFL goalscorers list, one behind Dean Bowditch and Andy Williams.

Manager Darren Way stated his intention to bring in reinforcements to strengthen his backline after the game, and brought in defender Sid Nelson from Millwall on Monday.

The 21-year-old, who boasts a healthy amount of Championship action on his CV, is in line to make his debut against Coventry City this weekend.

Mark Robins’ side began the campaign in fine fashion with two wins from two and no goals conceded.

That sequence concluded at home to Newport County last week.

Before that, youngster Jodi Jones had showed off his talents – especially in the season opener by scoring a hat-trick – while Michael Doyle and Stuart Beavon offer great experience.

Last year’s Checktrade Trophy winners are expected to win promotion back to League One at the first time of asking.

Head-to-head
All three of Town’s meetings with Coventry in Somerset have ended in draws.

The Sky Blues first visited Huish Park in 2012, where a 21st-minute Richard Hinds strike cancelled out an early Cody McDonald goal.

Yeovil’s last two matches against the Warwickshire outfit have finished 0-0.

Officials
Martin Coy will be the man in the middle this weekend. 

Both of Mr. Coy’s league matches this season have been in League Two.

The Durham-born official refereed 25 games last season, the majority in the National League, dishing out 84 yellows and one red.

Coy has never officiated a Yeovil match.

He will be assisted by Steven Plane (Worcestershire) and Robert Dabbs (Dorset) with Christopher Kidd (Oxfordshire) acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Yeovil Town 2-0 Coventry City

Glovers secure back-to-back home victories against Sky Blues

Goalscorer Rhys Browne escapes the challenge of Coventry City Liam Kelly PPAUK

Town put promotion favourites Coventry City to the sword to secure back-to-back Sky Bet League Two victories at Huish Park.

Rhys Browne profited from some slack defending to give Yeovil the lead on 27 minutes and in turn net the first EFL goal of his career.

Southampton loanee Olufela Olomola rounded things off late on, finishing off a blistering burst with a delightful strike to take the green and whites' points total to six.

Manager Darren Way restored Browne to the wing in one of two changes to his side that lost at Forest Green Rovers last weekend.

Elsewhere, Millwall loanee Sid Nelson made his debut in defence as Town lined up in a 4-4-2 formation.

Coventry, dented by a first defeat of the season to Newport County, were lightning quick out the blocks, creating the first chance after 30 seconds.

Winger Jodi Jones scampered 30 yards downfield and powered a left-footed shot that Artur Krysiak smartly parried to safety.

Ex-Dagenham & Redbridge winger Jones proved the visitors’ main attacking outlet in the opening exchanges and he tested Yeovil’s resilience once more with a low, devilish cross which Nathan Smith did well to clear.

The game’s tempo slowed as it reached the 20-minute mark, as Marc McNulty swiftly ended a dangerous Sky Blue counter-attack with an effort that found the top of the Thatchers terrace rather than the back of the net.

At the other end, Olomola used his strength to usher the ball back to Otis Khan whose strike looked destined for the top corner but Francois Zoko accidently intervened.

Then McNulty wasted a gilt-edged chance from the edge of the area before the Glovers capitalised on a defensive mix-up to take the lead.

Neither Coventry goalkeeper Liam O’Brien or defender Chris Stokes took ownership of Khan’s searching ball over the top and Browne took advantage to slot into an unguarded net.

The remainder of the first period lacked real quality in front of goal, showcased by Liam Kelly’s adventurous volley from distance, which sailed high and wide.

After the interval, Duckens Nazon hit a shot into the advertising boards and Bevis Mugabi glanced a header off target, before Coventry had two good attempts to restore parity.

Tony Andreu bent a 25-yard free kick on to the post – bizarrely winning a corner - and McNulty’s curler from the left-hand side of the area whistled past Krysiak’s far post. 

The latter’s next chance on goal brought the best out of Yeovil’s Polish stopper. 

A floated cross by Kelly was met by the former Sheffield United man and his header forced Krysiak into an excellent diving save, low to his right.

Boosted by their threatening chances, Coventry pushed forward in hope of an equaliser but time and time again found Town’s backline a tough nut to crack. 

The hosts’ rewards for their defensive efforts was a second goal to clinch three points.

Olomola surged down the right and buried a fierce strike into the far corner for his fourth goal in four league matches.

Town have scored 10 goals in the same period. A really pleasing statistic but the clean sheet will delight Way and the fans alike even more. 

Yeovil Town: Krysiak, Mugabi, Nelson (Davies 90), N.Smith, Dickson, Browne, Bailey, C.Smith, Khan, Olomola, Zoko.
Bookings: Olomola 15, C.Smith 56, Mugabi 90.
Subs not used: Maddison, James, Gray, Santos, Green, Surridge.

Coventry City: O’Brien, Grimmer, Willis, Hyam, Stokes, Doyle, Kelly, Jones, Andreu (Beavon 62), McNulty, Nazon (Biamou 81).
Bookings: None.
Subs not used: Burge, Kelly-Evans, Pearson, Stevenson, Vincenti.
